Default Should i buy a front one-way for the r40?

Ok, at the end of January i'll probably be getting an r40 for next spring.

At my local track there's quite a few different opinions, i used to run a losi xxx-s, i tried it both ways with and without one-way. I personally like driving it better with it, but some say it was a mental affect for me.

Here's pics of the track, it's relatively high traction, and the front strait is between 75-100 ft.

Reason i'm asking is that it seems i can only find the oneway overseas, and i'm thinking shipping will be up to 4 weeks, so i'd like to order it now.

So what does everyone think? Should i get it, and install it in the original build, instead of taking it apart to put it in?

i would buy the one-way b/c the track is some what open but also sweeping. There are some tight turns, but my track is the same way, except the straight is a little longer. I run the one-way and will never go back. Everyone says you get faster lap times w/ it, and now i believe them! A diff(i think) is for the person that likes to use a lot of brakes, i just coast into the corners and pass them. Good luck w/ your decision.....(get the one-way)

Thanks, mtx
That's kinda how i feel.
I really just needed someone to tell me to buy it.

Is there a difference in the effect of a oneway on a nitro car, since i'll assume it's significantly heavier than an electric?

i believe you get better turn in and more traction coming out of the corners

You can change between them to see which one you like better. It will only take 5-10 mins to change the diffs. Maintenance is very easy on the R40.

Buy it....if you like the XXXS with the one way.....then you are obviously not a brakes person...so you will like the one way on the R40.

PS- Nice track!!

It's all a matter of driver preference. I'd recomend running the one-way though. The tracks that are more "wide open" and have more sweeping turns dont require hard breaking so a one-way would be usefuel. But it's all up to you!

Thanks for the track compliment, we just got it together last season (well, i did alot of watching people work). It should be better this year, supposidly we are getting it sealed with the stuff they use on nascar tracks.

I first tried the xxx-s with the one way, then without.
I felt without it, i wasn't having any fun, and i had trouble adapting to driving without it.

I ordered the oneway overseas for 31 bucks, and 5 shipping, seems reasonable.

Thanks for everyones input, and i hope anyone else that reads this feels feel to contribute too.
